Re: Preparing for disaster

Coachclive,
Another way to solve the problem.  Use Western Digital Data Lifeguard Tools to create a bootable clone of your hard drive on the Western Digital Hard Drive.  This will require that your USB ports conform to USB 2.0 specs.  You can still use the hard drive to store the recovery image.  If your drive did not come with the Data Lifeguard CD, you can download it from Western Digital.   http://support.wdc.com/download/index.asp#dlgtools  This is the method I use.  Please note that this method creates a bootable clone that can be cloned back to the original hard drive or a replacement hard drive with the Data Lifeguard CD.  XP does not currently support booting from a USB hard drive per se.  See this: http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/device/storage/usb-boot.mspx
